The Ronald Reagan presidency inspired passionate debate, and the Reagan legacy is doing the same -- now including criticism of Sarah Palin by the Gipper's son.So who the hell is Ballerina Boy to say Sarah Palin is nothing like the great Ronald Reagan, when that spoiled rotten kid has spent his whole life running away from everything his father stood for. Ron Prescott isn't even a third of the man is father was. Just desperate to get his name in lights, and maybe sell two more copies of his book slandering his dad.
"Sarah Palin is a soap opera, basically," Ron Reagan Jr. told The Associated Press. "She's doing mostly what she does to make money and keep her name in the news."
Reagan spoke as Palin prepares to keynote tonight's Reagan 100 Opening Banquet sponsored by the Young America's Foundation, which owns the Reagan ranch in Santa Barbara, Calif., and is hosting one of many events celebrating Sunday's centennial of Reagan's birth.
The younger Reagan said he doesn't see any similarities between his father and the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee.
"She is not a serious candidate for president and never has been," said Reagan, who, it should be noted, is more liberal in his politics than his father was.
Palin is expected to discuss "Time for Choosing," the 1964 speech that essentially launched Reagan's career in elective politics.
All I know is that I don't need to be told who Ronald Reagan was by his atheist, useful idiot, embarrassment of a son. No real son of Ronald Reagan would be an Airhead America host, or speak at the Democrat Convention in 2004, in front of the very people who said the meanest things about the 40th President in the 1980s.
So Ron, stick to the dancing and the dog shows, and change your last name to Prescott. Michael Reagan is the only true Reagan heir.
